We all know that the internet is a timesuck like no other, a vast whirling morass of information, both worthy and suspect. As a writer I spend a lot of time on the internet, much of it on social networking, much of it on research, and some of it just plain enjoying a peek into the minds and hearts of writers, readers, and various fascinating personalities.
I try to keep it to a minimum, but when I find something really interesting, I like to pass it along to others. When I do, and if it has any kind of connection with murder mysteries, I will talk about it here.
And so, I am reviewing, today, Women in Crime Ink, a blog of various professionals in the crime field.
Women in Crime Ink consists of blog entries by various female professionals in the field, among them a criminal profiler, a forensics specialist, a mystery writer, a producer, a policewoman, a prosecutor, a defense attorney, and many more.
It is compelling reading. Today I checked out Diane Dimond's musing about who is truly to blame for Michael Jackson's death, an excerpt from the Rough Guide to True Crime by Cathy Scott, and defense attorney Katherine Scardino's account of a client's last day of freedom before going to prison for life on amurder charge. Fascinating, rivetting stuff.
So, check it out; you won't regret it, but you may wave your fist at me in anger at the time you will then spend sucked into some fascinating reading. Click on the logo below to visit!
